Term 4 unit 8 discussions

 Unit 8 DB: Being Alone, Isolated, and Misunderstood (MUS121 Rhythm, Blues & Hip Hop)

Using the internet or your phone, listen to the following songs:

  • “One”      by Metallica
  • “Smells      Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana
  • “Paranoid Android”      by Radiohead

After listening to the above songs, answer the following questions in your discussion post:

  • What musical influences do you hear in each of these songs      and how would you categorize each of them in a genre? (grunge, heavy      metal, rock?)
  • Listen carefully to the lyrics and share a few sentences as      to what each of these songs is about. Thematically they are similar and      project a sense of aloneness and cynicism, but what topics do they      address? What was happening in American culture during this time that      might have contributed to these feelings as expressed in these songs?      Could it be a generational (Baby Boomers v. Generation X) reaction? Or do      you think this is something else entirely.

Unit 8 Discussion: Analyzing Market Trends (MKT200 Principles of Marketing)


Walt Disney created the Disney brand from humble beginnings based on his love of drawing and animation. Few brands monetize content better than the Walt Disney Company and has since expanded into a global entertainment and media brand, and recently, has a new leader at the helm.

Simulated Business Scenario:

Gabriel is the executive in charge who created and developed Disney’s ‘customer-for-life’ concept.  This is based on the notion that as the child grows, Disney hopes to gain two brand loyalists: the parents and the child. Disney’s new CEO asked Gabriel to head up the new Disney+ streaming media brand. The CEO wants Gabriel to create a report which analyzes future marketing of the new Disney+ brand. You are on Gabriel’s team and he called a series of meetings to brainstorm the three items:


  • How can Disney+      differentiate itself and all its franchises from competing rivals in the      marketplace?
  • What digital and social      media marketing trends would you recommend that Disney+ implement to stay      ahead of the competition?
